    Shirin hanım is the best tour guide we ever met. She is so honest, so nice, so kind, so sweet and very talkative at the same time! I never had a better tour experience anywhere else in the whole world. I highly recommend her!!!...

    We have a special tour in October 2015. Sirin is our travel guide. She led us to visit Famagusta, Salamis, Kyrenia and Nicosia. I am very grateful to her for seriously explaining, let us know the history of Northern Cyprus and visited many beautiful places. I saw her enthusiasm for culture and sense of justice. The smile is always on her face. So I told her the event of "An Era of Conscience". After she understands this event which is beneficial to the world, she is also willing to respond. She is a very patient and very nice person. I hope I can meet her again when I visit Northern Cyprus next time.

    I was very fortunate to have been given an introduction to Sirin who  I thank you very much for making my time in North Cyprus interesting and for showing me much of the country including the Karpas Peninsular over two days when I was there in May 2014. Next time I will climb all the way to Buffavento Castle but start in the morning and take a picnic lunch!. The mountains along the north are wonderful with the castles perched on peaks and blending in with the mountain terrain. I enjoyed all thatI saw. The donkeys add interest and a bit of fun. I showed my grandchildren a photo of the small sand castle I built for them on Turtle Beach; almost 8yr old James did not give the mark of approval until he had questioned me on the quality of the sand!. I spent Saturday after-noon in north Nicosia; should have gone over earlier as I missed a couple of museums but was happy with what I had time to see. The buildings of and around the Selima Mosque are wonderful.  In Atthe Buyuik Han I was able to find the linen material used for the Lefkaraembroidery/lace so bought a length. Interesting how north and south Nicosia differ. The more historical and interesting buildings are probably in the northexcept for St John’s Cathedral with is incredible inside.. I stayed inin south Nicosia  and crossed over into the north without any hassel. Sirin was waiting for me on the two days I had engaged her as my guide. Should I visit north Cyprus againg, I hope Sirin is available for guiding .

    North Cyprus has some beautiful scenary as well as interesting antiquities..
